City Puzzle and Puzzle City
Architecture students around the world are invited to register before 30 August 2020 for this annual student competition, for which this year's theme is "City Puzzle and Puzzle City".
Jury chair Wolf D. Prix (Austria) has invited students to reflect on the "increasingly alienating nature" of cities, in whose "density one finds 'space' but no sense of 'place'." City-dwellers, observe Prix, "constantly arrive 'anywhere', but not 'somewhere'". Student participants will compete to design mixed-use buildings, integrating 30% green space, for 2,000 – 8,000 people for four squared plots, each plot measuring 200 meters by 200 meters. The jury meeting will take place on 14 October 2020.
